Kilindini Harbour

Kilindini Harbour 1

“Kilindini” is an old Swahili term that means “deep”. The Harbour is a large, natural deep-water inlet extending inland from Mombasa, which serves as the harbor for Mombasa, with an interland extending to Uganda. It is 25-30 fathoms (45–55 meters) at its deepest center. Kilindini Harbour is the main part of the Port of Mombasa, the only international seaport in Kenya and the biggest port in east Africa. It is managed by the Kenya Ports Authority (KPA), and is an example of a natural geographic phenomenon called a ria, formed millions of years ago when the sea level rose and engulfed a river that was flowing from the mainland
